Preschool Lessons Part 2

Before I start my tale of more things learned at preschool, I need to give you some background information. This year we started a new tradition. On Christmas Day - well, actually the day after because of my crap all memory - we put a candle in a mini cupcake, lit it, and sang 'Happy Birthday' to Baby Jesus.

Flash forward to preschool today... I stayed with Ana for the first part of the day, which included Chapel. Four classes worth of children filed into the small music room to learn the lessons of the day. The Chapel teacher, Miss J. I'll call her, held up wooden figures of Joseph, Mary, Baby Jesus, and the Three Wisemen as she told the story of Jesus' birth. When Jesus was held up, my little piper called out, "I love Jesus!" So appropriate and all of the teachers beamed and made encouraging "ahhh" noises. Sadly Ana continued. "I love him because I ate his cupcake all up!"

We were not the only piper, thank goodness. The story continued with the Three Wisemen - "And they brought gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Frankincense and myrrh are like very expensive perfumes."

"Hey! I saw those at Nordstrom!"

Ba. da. bum.
